    There's 22 titles, all the pre-1971 ABKCO titles. HOT ROCKS also has BROWN SUGAR and WILD HORSES from their later catalog, same as the old CD set. So far I have ten of the titles and they're worth buying for the CD layer. They sound nice on my Pioneer stable platter CD player. They go into high gear in my Sony C555ES SACD player. They are the buzz on all the U.S. boards. Why so quiet here?

    My highest recomendation goes out to LET IT BLEED, atleast among the original, non-compilation titles. If you have a SACD player to spin it on, it could pass for perfect vinyl. GIMME SHELTER may have never sounded better...? BROWN SUGAR on HOT ROCKS is the single best sounding cut to my ears, so far. I'm stille waiting for THE SINGLES COLLECTION and FLOWERS to come to my door.

    The Stones may be antique music but it's nice to hear them sounding this good again. The original ABKCO CD's hardly did justice to them. The SACD layers of the remasters are sounding very vinyl-ish....

    P.S.- some of the U.S. Toshiba DVD players can't read the CD layer. I don't think it's disc related, just crappy Toshiba design.

    I don't think any of us have seen it yet here in the UK.

    I really like Rolling Stones but does anyone think re-releasing their albums will help the SACD format. Wouldn't most Stones fans have their albums already on CD or vinyl, are we going to buy them again ?
    It is a question by the way, I'm not making a statement.

    I can only speak for myself ... I have a very large collection but while I liked the Stones I never actually got around to buying their albums so this re-release gives me the opportunity to buy them (especially as there is a shortage of worthwhile SACD or DVD-A).

    I replaced my LET IT BLEED and GET YOUR YA-YA'S out vinyl patters because they're pretty worn at this point. IMO, LET IT BLEED sounds better on SACD than the record did. GET YOUR 2X-YA's, I'm not so sure but it's better than CD quality. I picked up some others I never had same as the infomatique. 5 Creedence Clearwater Revival albums are coming out on hybrid disc this fall too. Again, my records are pretty worn I figur to buy 2 or 3 of them.
    All non-Sony, hybrid releases are helping the format, no doubt. The U.K. seems to be getting dumped on as far as titles it would seem? More non-Sony players would be a big bonus too, me thinks. About half the world loves Sony and the other half hates them.... Best wishes!
